Beautiful Entry Ways and Our New Home

I just love beautiful entry ways, it's the first impression you get when you walk into a home.

I'm loving the creamy white walls in this entrance with the mixture of the dark woods.
This is just stunning.
I always love the brick mixed in.
Again loving the white walls with the dark colors.
I had to add a gray entrance as I'm really loving the color gray these days.
Now for my favorite entry way, this is our new weekend home we purchased a few weeks ago. We will be closing on it around the 30th of this month, and we are so excited. This entry way is what sold it for me. I love it. I love how they mixed the stone and brick. I can't wait to start decorating. There will be lots of post as I'm decorating it. Hopefully it want take me as long as it has with my kitchen. The hold up on the kitchen has been finding the right chandelier, but I think I may have the one I want now. Wishing you a wonderful week!

The mixture of stone and brick made me think that your new house looks like a modern castle! Were you able to close the deal? It’s been a year already, for sure your new house is all set up. How is it now?

Like you, I also find stone and brick very appealing! This entryway makes me curious about how your entire house looks like inside and out. I hope that by now, all the renovations are done. You should post some pictures of it. Thanks!

Your house simply reminds me of European homes I usually see in movies. Hehe! It shows elegance and grace. Well, you don’t need to put a lot of embellishments to make it more beautiful because the design of the house already embodies sophistication.
